Abstract
Background: The coeliac trunk is an integral part of the circulatory system as it delivers blood from the heart to major organs within the abdominal cavity. The blood that it delivers is oxygenated and carries essential nutrients and immune system particles that can aid in life sustaining processes and can also prevent the development of diseases and complications from illnesses.

Aims & Objective: (1) To study the anatomy of coeliac trunk, through its diameter, length related to their branches and distance from superior mesenteric artery. (2) To study the clinical implication of coeliac trunk in case of the variations and anomalous formation of coeliac trunk.

Material and Methods: Morphology of coeliac trunk was studied in 100 formalin embalmed cadaver, aged between 50 to 80 years. Dissection method was use for this study.

Results: Measurement of the length of the coeliac trunk up to the left gastric, Measurement of the length of coeliac trunk up to common hepatic and/or splenic artery, Measurement of coeliac trunk diameter, Distance between coeliac trunk and the superior mesenteric artery were taken.

Conclusion: Knowledge of variations concerning the coeliac trunk is of extreme clinical importance in the areas of the laparoscopic surgery, and radiological procedures in the upper abdomen, and should be kept in mind by clinicians to avoid complications.

Key words: Coeliac Trunk; Left Gastric Artery; Common Hepatic Artery; Splenic Artery
